2015 Subaru BMX National Championships Brisbane

This was the 9th Round of the National Series and a double points round. The weather was horrible with pouring rain and racing at night made conditions very difficult. I knew I had to go out and go hard to secure a fast time. I managed the fastest time in Moto 1 which worked out to be the winning time as the event was cancelled for the safety of all riders. This result secured me in second place overall in the National Series for 2015. Coming second also had me selected in the Australian Senior Test Team for the second year running.

2015 NSW State Series

To qualify for the NSW State Titles this year I had to race a Metro and Country round of the NSW State Series. 
As this track was my mates Paige's home track and one of my favourites, I went along to have some fun and raced up in hte 16 Girls Class.
The track has had some major changes recently and it was hard getting the new third straight smooth. I had a pretty good day winning all my motos and trying to work out the quickest way around the track every lap, not always getting it right.

2015 ACT State Titles

Another weekend - another event!
This weekend was ACT titles held at my home track, Tuggeranong BMX.
Over two days of racing there was lots to get done.
Saturday I was racing idol and mentor CB68 in 14+ pro woman. I got a bit tangled up with the big girls but pulled through with 4th in the final.
Sunday was busy racing in two classes, A pro woman and 15-16 girls. Unfortunately there wasn't enough girls so we got bumped up to race with the age above.
I didn't drop a race all day and won my age group for the sixth year running.
